The CAN DO Fest is an annual programme of events to help entrepreneurs, investors and innovators to develop their ideas into new products and businesses. Alongside the complementary VentureFest, the CAN DO Fest also exists to showcase the very best of Scotland’s entrepreneurial scene.

Between the end of April and the middle of May events will be held across the country. Headline CAN DO Fest events include the Entrepreneurial Scotland Annual Conference, an Impact Summit and a series of Entrepreneurial Masterclasses. Participants can also get involved in pitch days, workshops, hackathons, seminars and networking events.

The Scottish Funding Council is an active contributor to the Scotland CAN DO initiative. Working alongside other skills and enterprise agencies SFC is helping to provide a “Team Scotland” approach to supporting and promoting innovation and entrepreneurship.

You can find out more and get details of all the events in the Scotland CAN DO Fest calendar on the festival’s website.
